DEXTER, MO (KFVS) -

A former pastor of a Dexter church facing stealing and forgery charges was arrested by St. Louis authorities last week.

Marcus C. Geuin was taken to the Stoddard County Jail. A change of judge was granted in the case. Judge Speilman from Dunklin County will hear the case. 

Court papers show a warrant was issued and filed by Stoddard County Prosecuting Attorney Russ Oliver on August 25 for Marcus C. Geuin with a cash only bond of $50,000. As of early Sunday afternoon, he had not been arrested.

Geuin is the former pastor of First Pentecostal Church on one One Mile Road in Dexter.

According to a police probable cause statement, Geuin is accused of stealing more than $112,000 from the church.

Police say interviews showed two signatures were forged on one bank document.

The church board told police when the alleged fraud was found out, there was little money left in the bank for church bills.

The current pastor tells Heartland News the church board is cooperating with authorities in the investigation. But, the current pastor says that he and the rest of the members are ready to put this all behind them.

Police say Geuin resigned from the church in May 2013.
